- The piece is criticizing the media’s coverage of the process of removing Sylvi Listhaug as the Minister of Justice in Norway. She is representing the political party FrP. The artist thinks the media should should pay more attention to the “bigger picture”. The piece shows headlines like: “YEMEN”, “HUNGER”, “Mass surveilence”, “Free Palestine” and more.
- After a few days, someone painted over the piece: Bergens Tidende
- Here is a poll about the piece. Is it appropriate?.
